4 stars A nice release by Swedish veterans Flower Kings here.

On this release they seem to be taking the first steps to move on from what I have felt being signature aspects of their sound - the lighter, jazzy melodic happy songs - and are venturing into slightly darker, more epic and blues/hard-rock inspired territories.

Old fans will still find lots of elements they will be familiar with though, lots of melodic playing, soloing, instrumental and vocal harmonies, and jazzy touches. But less of the "happy prog" I've always associated with this band.

None of the tracks really stand out as instant classics in my opinion; but a good, solid release.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
